As the country remains under lockdown to fight the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has debilitated the entire world, both government and non-profit organisations in Pakistan are trying to ease the economic burden of the current situation by providing the lower-income groups with rations, medicines and financial assistance.

So, if you want to lend a helping hand, here are some of the most renowned relief funds and charities in Pakistan you can donate to during the coronavirus outbreak.

Tips for Making Coronavirus Donations
While you can make a donation to one of the above-mentioned entities aiming to provide relief to the struggling families during the coronavirus pandemic, let’s not forget that charity starts at home. If you have any neighbours, family members, or acquaintances that might need help, make sure to reach out to them during these trying times.
Moreover, don’t forget to pay your drivers, maids and other helpers during the lockdown. Of course, they might not be incapable of showing up to work owing to the current situation, but you can still pay them their wages so that they can feed their families.
Last but not least, make sure to tip the deliverymen and other blue-collar workers when you can.
